Chrome gets a performance boost, simplified settings interface

It was just a month ago that Google brought Chrome up to version 9 with various performance upgrades and other improvements, but it's now already back with version 10, which is fresh out of beta today. That boasts yet more upgrades in speed -- include a 66 percent improvement in JavaScript performance on the V8 benchmark suite -- along with a completely revamped settings interface that replaces the usual window with a tab in the browser. You can also now synchronize your saved passwords across different computers, and Google has extended its sandboxing technology to the integrated Flash player in Chrome, which promises to better guard against malicious websites. As usual, Google has also explained all of the improvements in some handy videos -- check those out after the break.
